Drew Barrymore has revealed that she has been sober for two and a half years following a “quiet, confident” journey to sobriety.

The actress and chatshow host, 46, made the admission while appearing on CBS This Morning on Thursday.

Speaking about her decision to ditch alchohol, she said: “It was something I realised just did not serve me and my life.”

While she didn’t go into much detail about becoming sober, she did admit that she has “been very private with a lot of my struggles.”

Adding: “I wouldn’t be surprised if there is a revolt against the perfection right now that we are all forced to see and feel through social media.

“We’re in an impasse and a crux of a moment where talking about how we figure ourselves out, how we fix ourselves takes a journey and solutions. Most people do it in private.”
